The attraction here lies more in the setting than in the menu. Diners enjoy a dramatic rooftop view year-round in the glass-enclosed terrace, which opens up in summer for fresh air. (Be prepared to climb several flights of stairs to reach it, though.) Not that the food—kebabs, roast chicken and lamb, plus small plates from Turkey, Morocco and elsewhere—is poor. Far from it. It’s hard to live up to the spectacular location, though. But what a view to aspire to.
